Please say Fedora

| Typically I am really good at understanding 
| an Indian dialect because the area of 
| Chicago I grew up in was largely an Indian 
| population. The person on the phone was a 
| bit harder to understand and I believe the 
| reason was because they had a mix of the 
| Indian dialect with a distinct southern US 
| draw. Anyways, after talking to the AT&T 
| tech support person for a few minutes, I 
| started telling him what was going on and 
| what I had done thus far. He asked what 
| version of Windows I was using to test and I 
| told him I wasnât using Windows and instead 
| was using Linux. I expected the âWe donât 
| support Linuxâ comment, but was floored when 
| he said, âPlease say you are using Fedora.â  
| I chimed in with a âSorry, using Kubuntu.â 
| He chuckled then said, âSome people will 
| never learn.â We shot little jabs back and 
| forth at each other having a bit of fun 
| while he was doing a modem test. In the end 
| they figured out it was their issue and some 
| AT&T techie will be out there today to fix 
| the issue.



Fedora 13 Features Preview

,----[ Quote ]
| Goddard is the codename for the latest
| version of the bleeding edge Linux
| distribution, Fedora 13. Eve before the
| release of Fedora 12 there were new feature
| plans for Fedora 13. New features continue
| to be added to the feature plans of Fedora
| 13 scheduled for a planned release on May
| 11, 2010. The Fedora 13 feature list
| includes a number of features that didn't
| make it in time for Fedora 12. The feature
| list includes NFSv4 protocol by default,
| support for mounting NFS servers over IPv6,
| and yum language package plug-in. It's
| almost time for Fedora 13 feature freeze
| and we hardly expect any new last minute
| additions. With most accepted Fedora 13
| features highlighted on Fedora Project Wiki
| we decided to provide a comprehensive
| preview of the Linux distribution.

| Fedora 13 would offer enhanced support for
| DisplayPort in X and kernel drivers for
| NVIDIA hardware. DisplayPort offers a
| higher link bandwidth than dual-link DVI.
| Monitors can easily take advantage of this
| by providing higher resolutions, higher
| color depths, and higher refresh rates. The
| DisplayPort will also run at a lower
| voltage than DVI and LVDS, and uses lesser
| power. The future laptops will likely
| switch to embedded DisplayPort for the
| local panel for this reason. With this
| feature, Fedora users can take advantage of
| the the technical superiority of
| DisplayPort.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
